How to make AfterCheck event to trigger when a node's text is clicked in WinForms TreeViewAdv?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: TreeViewAdv

Handle MouseDown event

It is possible to get the AfterCheck event triggered when a node's text is clicked instead of the checkbox by handling MouseDown event along with the PointToClient and PointToNode method.


private void treeViewAdv1_MouseDown(object sender, System.Windows.Forms.MouseEventArgs e)
   if(e.Button == MouseButtons.Left)
       // Get the point where the mouse was left clicked
       Point p = this.treeViewAdv1.PointToClient(Control.MousePosition);
       // Get the node at the left click point
       TreeNodeAdv node = this.treeViewAdv1.PointToNode(p);
       if(node != null)
           // See if the label was clicked on
               node.Checked =!node.Checked;


Private Sub treeViewAdv1_MouseDown(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.MouseEventArgs)
   If e.Button = MouseButtons.Left Then
       ' Get the point where the mouse was left clicked
       Dim p As Point = Me.treeViewAdv1.PointToClient(Control.MousePosition)
       ' Get the node at the left click point
       Dim node As TreeNodeAdv = Me.treeViewAdv1.PointToNode(p)
       If Not node Is Nothing Then
           ' See if the label was clicked on
           If node.TextAndImageBounds.Contains(p) Then
               node.Checked =Not node.Checked
           End If
       End If
   End If
End Sub
